Can I Replace My iPhone Battery Myself?

If you love your iPhone, there is a good chance you have put the battery to the test. When the time between charges gets shorter and shorter or your phone seems to be slowing down, it may be time to replace the battery. However, iPhone batteries do not just “pop out” like many other cell phones. Replacing the battery is a little more challenging and requires the right tools and expertise.

To replace an iPhone battery, it is more than just popping off the back of the case of the phone. You need a battery removal kit to have the right tools to do the job. iPhones are glued and screwed together. You will need to carefully remove adhesive and screws to take out the battery and inset the new one. The problem is that if done incorrectly, you can break the adhesive and even damage the battery. Plus, on newer iPhones, you can lose the waterproofing once the glue is removed.

Bring Your iPhone to a Pro

While you can buy the kits to replace your own iPhone battery, it is worth it to have a professional do this job for you. It is not worth the risk of damaging your device to save a few bucks off a battery replacement service. Find a quality cell phone repair shop that specializes in iPhone repairs and bring your phone in for a battery replacement. These pros have the training and tools to do the repair right – make sure to ask if they warranty their services.

Some tasks are best left to the professionals. If you iPhone battery needs replacement, bring it to a local cell phone repair shop versus doing it yourself.

iPhone Battery Extenders

Posted in iPhone Repairs

iPhones are one of the most popular smart phones on the market.  Offering a great deal of basic functions such as a phone, camera, contact management and calendar, the device also has the capability to run tens of thousands of applications or “apps”.  While this capability is truly remarkable the only downside is that all of this drains down the battery on the iPhone quickly. 

While it may not dramatically impact all users, it does impact those users, especially mobile business people, who are not in a position to recharge the battery during the day and primarily need the phone function.  Although Apple recommends a number of steps to take to conserve battery life, including setting up the device to check for email a certain amount of times per hour, these really limit the usefulness of the device. 

One alternative is to have a battery extender installed on the iPhone.  There are a number of different options available at several different price points, but iPhone battery extenders all basically do two things.  First they dramatically reduce the amount of time it takes to fully charge the phone. 

This ability to “rapid charge” the phone is a great timesaver for people on the run.  Second, the battery extender will provide double the life of the iPhone’s normal battery.  Now it is possible for business users of the iPhone to be able to use the device normally during the day and depending upon the usage of the phone, eliminate the need to recharge the phone during the normal business day.  Imagine never needing to tell someone on the phone “I need to go now, my battery is almost dead”!
